Adventure Balloon Ride

Pyrenees, Montserrat, Barcelona and Catalonia

Description

The ADVENTURE BALLOON RIDE invites you to live a different and amazing balloon experience over Catalonia landscapes. You will discover, from the sky, the countryside of Catalonia, beautiful valleys and emerald forests, between Barcelona and the Pyrenees mountains. You will be floating in the air during 2 hours, a much longer flight in duration than the other standard balloon tours. The concept is to head to the take off site according to the weather forecast, for that reason we will keep secret the launch field until last moment .... this is real adventure !

Activity description : the activity starts at dawn with the picking up of the passengers at the meeting point or at hotel. Then, the passengers are transferred in our BALLOONING vehicle to the take off site. Once there, the passengers can help the ballooning team to prepare and inflate the hot air balloon. When the balloon is up, we take off for a 2 hours balloon flight. The wind is the master of our way up the Catalonian landscapes. The landing marks the end of our ride. The "chase crew" comes to collect the balloon and the passengers. Then we all come back to the meeting point and celebrate the balloon experience with a Cava toast and a surprising special brunch. To finish passengers will receive their first flight certificate signed by the pilot.
